Here's a link to an interview with Shannon Wheeler. It's not about Too Much Coffee Man (look up Live Wire radio + Shannon Wheeler if you really want that). It's about a graphic novel he's working on (set in New Orleans, post Katrina) and I CAN'T WAIT FOR IT TO COME OUT! Also he has a great laugh and who doesn't want to hear a great laugh?

For those of you who haven't met Too Much Coffee Man, no time like the present. Shannon Wheeler has been selling his fine gag cartoons to The New Yorker, in recent years, and you can find both on his fine website at

I bought the self-published comic book issues reprinted in this fine volume as they appeared in the mid-1990s, and just finished rereading this 1999 anthology, again.
Our hero, Too Much Coffee Man, is silly, surreal, and slavishly devoted to The Bean.

Meh. I would almost give this one star alone, except for a few good moments and the nostalgia it holds for me. This is a book that I found revelatory at 16, and just.. uninspired at 27. The author even writes about having no inspiration, just wanting to be popular. Ugh.

I got this thinking that it would be hilarious, and hilarity is has, but it turned out to be more tragic than anything. It is more an autobiography of the creator of Too Much Coffee Man, than of TMCM himself.

Quite simply one of my favorite "pick up and read in one sitting" books of all time. It's not genius, it's not high art, but it's damn funny, and something that most of us cafe-dwelling over-educated slackers can get hooked on.

No likey! Not a graphic novel, it is a strip. Neurosis is not funny to me. That is all.

I'm not entirely sure how to feel about this comic, which I suppose is a good thing; it certainly gives you ideas to consider.
